WHO ARE WE?

The firm was founded in 1972 by Mike Fish and we still have clients who have been with us since the early days. Alan Hall joined in 1982 and the firm became Hall and Parsons in 2006. 
Alan retired from the firm in March 2017 and is now involved with the management of DABS Consulting Ltd, an associated commercial property investment business and is frequently in the office.

Many of our staff have been with use for longer than they may care to admit and we think that continuity and deep experience means that there are few taxation, business management or compliance problems that we can’t solve. 

Our clients base is incredibly diverse and this, combined with our breadth of experience, means that we efficiently arrive at a solution.

Where required, we will go to our extensive network of specialist tax, banking, investment or legal advisors to find an answer, because we know that we don’t know everything!

Many of our clients reside overseas and we are aware of the trans-border issues that may arise in terms of tax and financial reporting compliance. 

We act for many non-resident investors and our services to them often include management of their investment properties, including processing of bank transactions and payment of creditors, in addition to annual compliance matters. 

Our intention is to provide good service, of a high quality, but for a reasonable level of fees compared to larger firms.
We are familiar with most accounting software packages including Xero, MYOB and Reckon-Quick Books.
